Earlier this week, Sri Lanka's national women's team captain Chamari Athapaththu, playing for Falcons team against the Warriors made a brilliant knock of unbeaten 107 runs, which included 13 fours and five sixes.
The 32-year-old all-rounder was playing the first D/N match in the FairBreak Invitational Tournament.
Interestingly, the 90 players from 35 countries participating in this tournament have no display of numbers on their shirts.
No numbers, flags only
"Yes, the players' shirts have names and country flags instead of numbers,” R. Venkatesh, the Tournament Director, speaking exclusively over the telephone from Dubai, said. 
"This showcases the names of countries participating and also shows the players as individuals. This shows the global footprint of the tournament,” he added.
The players' kits are made of recyclable plastic or black hemp. "These two are sustainable materials. This is consistent with our policy of being conscious about wastage and degradation issues and ensuring that we promote sustainability,” Venkatesh signed off.
